[applause] when congressman ryan was picked as mitt romney's running mate last year, he became a subject of fascination. everything about him, extending even to his workout routine which is the p90x workout routine. and for those of you who aren't fit enough to have a workout routine, it sounds like it's some advanced piece of military weaponry -- [laughter] or if you happen not to work out an hour every day before breakfast, the p90x, from what i understand, involves this whole theory is you confuse your muscles, as they call it, by constantly trying a new and different workout every day. and we have evidence that paul ryan is very loyal to this workout regime because, actually, his most innovative workout has been caught on tape and broadcast very broadly. i'
or paul ryan have been saying, it's different from what they themselves were saying six months ago, a year ago. i think the focus is turning to the right place. that doesn't mean that he'll persuade the public, but it certainly helps to ask the right question if you're looking for the right answer. >> where joe, i want to bring up something that my friend john podhoretz mentioned, and i say that carefully because reihan salam, my name has up been butchered by others, so i want to thank you for the privilege of butchering someone else's name. it's a rare treat for me. [laughter] i wanted to ask you, part of what i heard in john podhoretz's remarks is that some of the difficulties we encountered, shall we say, during the invasion of iraq and the occupation were things that really damaged the republican brand in a deep way, yet -- and so you've had a lot to say about foreign policy. you've also had a thing or two to say about the republican position on taxes and a number of other issues. so i wonder, is your view that republicans need to get right on foreign policy and can that that is really
ryan which was going in the right direction of controlling spending, still had a debt for the end of this year at $1,711,000,000,000,000. spent it is getting worse. >> thank you. there's a question that allowing debt to continue to build more rapidly so a debt as a share of gdp is -- on some circumstances it is inevitable. the circumstances are not what we have today. we should be getting it under control and doing so quickly. >> mr. johnson? >> congressman, figures two and three in my written test will address this issue directly. these are the congressional budget office numbers. this is the number two and you can see the impact tax cuts, to foreign wars, medicare part d which was not paid in 2008, bush tax cuts and then, of course, the financial crisis, if you moved to figure through this shows you the swing in medium-term debt projected by the cbo before and after they realize the severity of the financial crisis. 50% of gdp increased -- >> let me ask you a question. was the president right? yes or no? >> the president was right when he spoke, what did he realize was how bad i

, recent graduate -- [inaudible] my christian is no spur to ryan. it has to do is start calm. what can we do effectively these days to interrupt certain messages of our own works >> not a whole lot. i think it's really important when we talk about strategically engaging to recognize often times you get this dynamic where we think about operations and then strategic communications and that's clearly wrong. actions speak author than words. the matter what people are assigned to archer illustrates and i'm not convinced the trust strikes are important i sometimes people think they are. but the most important thing we can do is to eliminate any sense there's a gap between our actions and works, even if our actions are unpopular. we just need to explain what we're doing from the state clearly what were doing it. peter bergen wrote an op-ed a long time ago saying we should acknowledge strong strikes. at the time is that he was crazy, but he came to agree with him. and this is the point. we have a story to tell that it's not going to be popular lot at the time, but we need to explain that very cl

[applause] >> thanks so much for being he here. please toggle bit about why you decide to be a part of the process. >> first of all i've known kevin for a long time, and he's one of america's humble heroes and has been for my entire, our entire journey together. covenant house fits right into newark, new jersey. it has a location right in newark, new jersey, with a hard and the spirit and soul that does so much for our city. i've met the kids, young people come through it and i was very moved. so knowing you and knowing about covenant house, it was a no-brainer. but i felt very privileged to write the forward for it because it gave me a chance to recognize the fact that my dad, but for the kindness of others, would have been homeless himself. he was born to a single mother,
, this is a tough thing. the house did that, paul ryan did a budget that would a tough budget that would make some tough choices. and so they were attacked in the election. how, threes horrible people, want to throw all people off the cliff and that kind of thing. and it was irresponsible. while during this entire process, the united states senate was in direct violation of federal law that required us to bring up a budget and they didn't bring it up because it would be foolish, footish politically, because you have to take tough -- foolish politically, because you have to stand up and take tough votes, members have to be analyzed. how much are you really going to raise the death taxes? oh, is that going to change the debt course, this latest $600 billion tax increase, is that going to change the debt course on america? no, really, it's not. our deficit last year was about $1,080,000,000,000, $1.1 trillion. how much was this tax increase, $600 billion? that's $60,000 a year. so instead of $1.1 trillion in deficit, our deficit would have been $1,020,000,000,000. is that going to fix our problem? it

pulled them out of damascus. we had coming you know, very brave ambassadors, like ryan crocker, one of our very best who it would be very difficult to say you can't do this even though you decided you should do it. but what we are trying to do is create a more ongoing discussion between our ambassadors, our bureau back in the state department at our regional experts and our security people so that at the very least, no one ambassador is taking an unnecessary risk however that is the kind. >> with regards to the ambassador stevens, certainly it was brave of him to go to benghazi on the days he did. i have to ask you honestly though, was their anything on the itinerary on the 11th that actually specifically required his personal presence? >> he certainly thought so, congressman, and he did of course discuss this with his own security people but we do have regional security officers in these posts. they are the ones and ambassador will return to. he believes it was important for him to go to benghazi. there were a number of meetings that he was holding in some public events that he had
